    I've been kicking around in Mayfly Knits this past summer. Welcome change from the regular boots and derbies.

    And Mr Porter ^

    Tried on the NSW Free's today with the leather/mesh/ and or suede mix. Not really a fan. They fit about .5 tighter as well FWIW

    Also for those in SF the Nike Town actually has sizes 12 and up on the flyknits.

    Those obsidian/blue NSW lunarwhatevers are also really really cool. they have them at caliroots, too, if anyone else is wanting them.

    they just don't look so impressive in person.

    very bulky and gimmick for what a running shoe is suppose to be IMO.

    I saw all the colorways in person at my Finish Line and if I had to choose probably the black suede or cream/white

    I thought the spotted sole was going to be real awesome but I got over that real quick.
    Hopefully if I stop by the other mall near by I can finally pickup some flyknit perhaps.

    FWIW I only saw the all black version at the SF Nike Town...
    Still would prefer these though but they are long gone now :( :fu:

    but I can't find them in stock anywhere else.

    Haha it is awesome what a noob I am with the nike shtuff.

    I wore those flyknits all weekend, and even went for a run in them (into the aforementioned moose), and though they were not ideal for the run, they were totally awesome otherwise.

    Which shoe are you speaking of?

    The Lunar shoes aren't really that bulky, no more bulky than any neutral New Balance, Asics, Mizuno, etc... running shoes out there. If you are comparing it to sprinting shoes that weight almost nothing, then yeah these are RO in comparison but the Lunarglides 4 are very light, less than 10 ounces, it's crazy how light and cushioned it is.

    i was talking about these

    also tried on this pair and as much as I want to like it it just sort of clashed. even at $60 i had to pass.

    You really found the Free Run 3 bulky? I haven't handled the leather versions but my Free Runs is probably my lowest profile Nike shoe to date. It just isn't bulky at all unless the leather versions are substantially more cushioned or padded but even then I just can't imagine them being that bulky. I just find that weird.

    Gimmicky more than bulky with the NSW iteration. Some people will probably like the leather or suede upper. I personally like the sleekness mesh provides.

    Leather just gives the look more heft. I was looking at it and held the shoe in my hand and thought why would I pick this leather sneaker up compared to some other sneakers e.g. CP, MMM, etc.
    The style does not meet functionality. This decision I have to disagree with Nike.
